I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be a Christian

I’ve recently listened to two audio books on religion – Richard Dawkin’s "The God Delusion" and "I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist", by Norman L. Geisler and Frank Turek (still half way through).

Both books claim that the existence of God is a scientific question. The latter looks like a keen attempt to persuade the reader that:

  1. We can conclude, on logic and philosophical reasons alone, that God exists.
  2. Christianity the correct religion, again for logical reasons.

The book is dangerous. It contains a great deal of truth – which makes the falsehoods hard to detect sometimes.

Here is a neat dissection of the book, written in a form of a dialog with the book itself. Recommended reading.

לפי הרב משה ביגל, מאכל מזון לא כשר יהפוך אותנו ללא מוסריים.

Science Vs Faith

Not faith in God, which cannot actually be refuted by “contradicting evidence”. Rather, faith in some religion and stories, some of which contradict known scientific facts (= theories proven beyond reasonable doubt), like Evolution.

Religious Brain

They found a biological basis for religion. WTF.
